: Does anyone have trouble taking all of the reflux
: medicines? With me they all cause either muscle
: and joint pain
Yes, I can't take the PPI's. Prevacid and Aciphex give me horrible muscle pain and lightheadedness, and Prilosec gives me diarrhea, dry cough, headache and extreme nervousness. I tried OTC Pepcid and it gave me chest pains. The gaviscon doesn't give me any side effects.
At this point I'm pretty discouraged and guess I will look into the Nissen surgery. Don't want to get it done, though, since I've heard a lot of horror stories about it!
